the obama administration tand democrat congress pursued an agenda of every frustrated liberal at the expense of the public good and contrary to the will of the people. when america needed a growth strategy to revive our session-racked economy, the obama administration and the pelosi-reid congress gave us a $1 trillion stimulus bill that only stimulated more government. as unemployment soared to 10%, america needed and called for policies that would spur job creation. instead of focusing on jobs, the obama administration and its democrat congress spent a year concocketting a government-run health care system, one that stifles job creation as well as drives up the cost of health care. at a time when we desperately needed incentives to create new jobs, president obama and his congressional allies tried to impose the biggest tax increase in american history on small business owners by letting the bush tax cuts expire. two years of their calling for these massive tax increases caused more uncertainty among employers, making them reluctant to hire anybody or spend more money. along the way, the pr
president obama see it differently. he told a local reporter, quote, some of what i heard coming out of wisconsin where you are making public employees to collective bargain generally seems like an assault on unions and it's very important to understand that public employees they are neighbors and friends. >> when asked, whether he was taking sides? >> he expressed his opinion directly. >> shannon: one official says the dnc has been organizing rallies activatelogy phone backs to lobby lawmakers. the bill exempts local firefighters, police officers and members of the wisconsin state patrol but can it could have a major impact on teachers who have been adding force. >> as much as the economics is important our ability to defend our students' right to fair education is on the line. >> dnc is involved in a similar show down playing out in ohio. they urged them dnc to suspend tactics. this is not the way you begin an adult conversation. >> brett: much more on this on the panel. >>> back here in washington, congress is considering cuts to federal spending. that is prompting howlswls from o

presidente "barack obama" el llamado del pueblo de libia ha sido muy claro al exigir que "moamar gadafi" debe irse ya.--durante una conversacion telefonica con la canciller alemana "angela merkel", obama dijo que cuando un Íder solo puede conservar el poder a traves de la violencia contra su pueblo, ese Íder ha perdido la legitimidad para gobernar.--se trata de la primera vez que obama insta a "gadafi" a renunciar.--mientra tanto, el hijo mayor del Íder libio, "saif al islam", se reunio hoy con tribus del este de libia para llegar a un acuerdo que evite mas enfrentamientos entre los opositores al regimen y quienes estan a favor. --por su parte, el consejo de seguridad de la onu aprobo este dia por unanimidad una resolucÓn que contempla fuertes sanciones contra el regimen de moamar gadafi y su familia.--los 15 miembros coincidieron en que los responsables de la represÓn contra la poblacion civil en libia deben responder por sus actos, ademas de exigir un alto inmediato a la violencia en ese pais. y a miles de kilometros de y a miles de kilometros de miles de kilómetros de distana en el
of the day. our question to you is about president obama's faith. he spoke about it today, addressing the belief by some that he is a muslim and not a christian. carol costello is here. he keeps facing the same question. >> i know, he does. president obama got personal abouts had faith his morning at the national prayer breakfast, talking about how accepted jesus christ in his life and a poll shows that only a minority of americans know he is a christian and a growing number of americans who believe she a muslim. the white house says his speech is not in response to those who love to call him barack hussein obama. >> my christian faith has been a sustaining force for me over these last few years. all the more so when michelle and i hear our faith questioned. from time to time. we are reminded that ultimately what maurtters is not what othe people say about us but whether we are being true to our conscience and god. >> according to pugh research half of americans correctly identify the presidents a christian. here is your time to talk back. what will it take for people to believe presi

of the first supporters of then senator obama over senator clinton to be president. then she has last august this vote in missouri some horrendous percentage, 70% wanted to dump the individual mandate. now she has to do backpedaling. what is she going to do? >> i don't know. the secretary of health and human services has granted 2.2 million waivers. >> greta: that takes the money out of the system so who going to pay? >> 167 unions. >> greta: how many? >> 167 unions, 880,000 union employees. >> greta: how many got waivers? >> 40% have gone to union employees, just 7% of the workforce. total now of over 500 waivers, 2.2 million americans. we think every american ought to be able to get a waiver from this terrible health care law. >> greta: when do we get a vote on your bill? >> we don't know. repeal and replace will be voted on tomorrow. i hope it passes. i hope we start over. john and you are committed to making sure this amendment is placed on any bill that comes through the senate until we get a vote. if the people of this country could speak not just judges this bill would be released our
spending cuts. president obama huddles with senate democrats over his new budget proposal and a man many would like to see running for president makes an impression here in d.c. live from the studio in washington. this is special report. >> brett: good good evening. the ballot how to save your money is getting tougher. federal government's balance sheet is getting lower as the days tip down toward a major deadline. carl cameron is watching the fiscal carnage on capitol hill. good evening. >> reporter: in the quest to cut more than $60 billion from current spending congress today approved an amendment that would de-fund a back up engine for the ficht 35 joint fighter jet. it could cost a lot of jobs and would save more than $3 billion over the next couple of years on a jet engine the pentagon said they didn't want in the first place. >> when it comes to cutting programs by democrats, the left is fighting back from those that jobs could be lost. >> this is deeper than what we have faced before. >> reporter: democrats blasted the plan to eliminate the budget for corporation for public broad
police. and what's the worst part about being president of the united states? president obama may wish he could take another stab at answering that question and talk a little bit less about himself. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." the observeway white house is warning egypt that words are not enough. no more, and that the mubarak government must take concrete steps towards greater freedom and democracy. let's go straight to the white house. our correspondent dan lothian is joining us with the latest. sensitive times, dan, for the president, but these are critically important issues. >> reporter: that's right, and all of the energy here at the white house is focused on strongly encouraging this transition process along, realizing that it is not easy because, as one official pointed out here at the white house today, the situation on the ground in egypt changes from hour to hour, so as robert gibbs says it's going to be a bumpy road. strolling back to the white house from his u.s. chamber of commerce speech president obama struck an optimistic tone on the process to resolv
continue to grow while domestic spending is going to be flat over the next 5-10 years under president obama's budget. there was a much ballyhooed announcement they were cutting $70 billion over the next five years at the pentagon. but in fact, that was a reduction from a previous projections for growth. so, the total amount -- which is a famous budget tricky here in washington -- so the total amount will continue to increase. i think as we discussed earlier, the major programs are continuing on. some of them slightly scaled back but the budget is still projecting a second engine for the f-35 although the president opposes that. congress continues to spend on that. it should be noted the factory where it will be billed is next to john vander's district in ohio. and at other military programs. where there may be reductions in military spending may be supplemental authorization as we wind down the wars in iraq and afghanistan, presuming the political situation in those countries go well. the caller mentioned nasa. nasa was slated for cuts in the house republican plans, along with a lot of scie
? michelle obama's words on the subject touched off a fiery debate and don't think you can predict where liberals and con conservatives come down on this one t is february 18, 2011, i'm savannah guthrie. >> everything have to be polar rising. >> apparently nothing sacred. >> i'm chuck off. get to the run down. maybe the next political story the next two years has been ignited in wisconsin. we are going to start in a showdown in the states. governors are slashing spending, cope with billions of dollars in budget short falls thanks to a whole bunch of reasons, medicaid new york more recovery act, the battle lines are drawn in many 2012 battleground states. many have ideologically conservative republican governors. >> to set the scene a little bit, 44 states are projecting combined deficits of 125 billion for 2012. this pits democrats against fiscally conservative governors, many of whom have just come into office. in which is, which the protests in their fourth straight day over governor so the scot walkers a plan to eliminate most collective bargaining rights for public employees and make
with president barack obama. >> any of the violence is instigated by the government, it should stop immediately. >> there needs to be a transition. >> the white house looking for the next step as the calm in egypt is broken by a president who refuses to leave. >> we have had rock throwing and clashes in the front of the museum of egypt. i stood there yesterday. it's hand-to-hand rock throwing combat. >> in effect pro-mubarak street gangs. almost like the middle ages. they are dumping substances off the rooftop. they drove past our camera location early this morning, we were on "morning joe" and the "today" show. >> the white house message, mubarak must go soon. >> the white house is in a full-blown crisis mode. >> breaking news, the white house is responding. >> the time has come now. >> speeches are not enough. >> the white house takes no action, yet. >> obama administration stands at a turning point here. >> who sends people on camels and horses to beat people? the violence is clearly from the mubarak side. >> the tone in washington, still united in egypt as republicans make another attack on
at the wisconsin state capital. as you said, the drama has made it all the way to the without. president obama criticized the budget bill, saying that it seemed like it was, quote, short-sighted thinking on the part of the governor. listen here to president obama. >> i would say, as a general proposition, that everybody's got to make some adjustments to new fiscal realities. we had to impose, for example, a freeze on pay increases for federal workers for the next two years as part of my overall budget freeze. on the other hand, some of what i have heard coming out of wisconsin, where you're just making it harder for public employees to collectively bargain generally seems like more of an assault on unions. >> reporter: the president through press secretary jay carney, he reiterated his boss's point, saying the president doesn't think this is the right way to fix a shorefall, but on the other end, john boehner is criticizing the president and defending scott walker. in a statement he released, he said, in part, quote, rather than shouten down those in office who speak honestly about the challen
and author of "the violence of peace" america's wars in the age of obama, steven carter here to talk about the super bowl this morning. >> willie, what happened, man? >> it was a good game. >> the super bowls have all been good for the last six, seven years. the bears/colts one kind of stunk. packers jump out to a 21-3, looked like you could go to bed at halftime. >> did i. >> then they cut the score to four. they couldn't quite finish off the comeback. incredible run for the packers. they had to fight to get into the playoffs. they won on the road to philly, atlanta, chicago and now beating the steelers. aaron rodgers was named mvp. remember he was drafted to be brett favre's backup, stepping out of favre's long shadow and winning the most valuable player trophy last night. >> mark halperin, try to weigh this for me if you will. >> please. >> as we watch the super bowl highlights, what you think had more impact on the sporting world yesterday, the steelers losing the super bowl to this gutsy team or liverpool beating chelsea? >> a draw. >> it's a draw. >> no doubt about it. >> you saw the
about what the obama's administration is, at times they are saying mubarak they want him to transition out and now a special envoy that visits the region says not so fast. what are you hearing there? >> the message certainly has changed in flavor, perhaps in total to be quite honest. we just saw a special envoy frank lisner -- whirt ner, obama they want a full removal of mubarak. they say it's crucial that they stage the transition. dramatically different what we were hearing. he says he believes increasingly they will be an orderly transition to democracy. >> i therefore believe that president mubarak's continued leadership is critical, it's his opportunity write his own legacy. >> reporter: now speaking if munich, secretary of state hillary clinton has today said that the transition pro said led by omar suleiman must be supported. officials are quick to say she doesn't mean that there is any u.s. support for the vice president to have a new role in the new government come the elections that are planned for later this year. they are not trying to endorse anybody in particular but by s
: -- >> martha: it was a -- it's the big presuper bowl faceoff that everybody talked about, president obama sat down with bill o'reilly before kickoff, the leader of the free world tackling tough questions from bill o'reilly on super bowl sunday, they took on the economy, whether or not the president is actually moving to the center, the crisis in egypt, whether mubarek needs to go, canadait, cordial, fascinating interview. we're going to break it down moments from now, we'll go through with how he felt it all went down, that is going on inside "america's newsroom" this morning. >>> then there is this: a possible turning point in egypt today. reports this morning that a new cabinet is having their very first meeting since this crisis began two weeks ago, protestors, though, once again filling into their position necessary tahrir square, they are refusing to budge until president mubarek steps down. i'm martha maccallum on a monday in "america's newsroom". rick: nice to be with you, i'm rick folbaum. transition talks, set to get underway in cairo. martha: antigovernment protestors saying they w
>> paul: this week on the journal editorial report. obama's budget gets panned by the right and left for failing to make the hard decisions. does the gop see the president's punt as an opportunity for a trap? a wild showdown in wisconsin over collective bargaining rights for public unions. is it a taste of thins to come? educating wars heat up. reformers more drastic measures to improve school performance. we'll talk to someone who spent a decade on the frontlines. >> paul: welcome to the journal editorial report i'm paul gigot. president obama veiled his budget this week for fiscal year 2012. to near unanimous agreement from the left, right and center that it does nothing to reduce the federal deficiency. is his failure to make the tough choices an opportunity for the republicans or a potential trap? joining the panel this week, wall street journal columnist, kim strassel. steve moore. assistant editorial page editor james free man. kim, the president must have understood that this was the way this proposal was going to be received. what is their political thinking? >> i li
. mean while the obama administration says if the mubarak government instigated this violence, it has to stop immediately. is this administration doing a good job managing the uprising? let's bring in fox news political analyst dick morris who joins from us sacramento. now, dick, some conservatives out there. bob kagan and even bill kristol are saying, not fair to jump on the president here. this a fluid situation. trying to get a handle on it trying to get the right thing done in egypt. hold off on criticizing. what do you say? >> if you hold off on criticizing you could find yourself with the second iran collin powell said it best about iraq. he said if you break it, you own it. clearly president obama whether it's because of his words about rad radical islam, failure to condemn it. failure to name terrorism. his appeasement and very possibly outright efforts to encourage people to destabilize the mubarak regime broke egypt and he now owns it. if that government falls and if it is replaced by a muslim brotherhood organization which is closely related to hamas. the question closely j
described by "the new york times" as the political machine for president obama. the president's chief political apparatus. if you good to their website, you will see a message saying, "organizing for america is mobilizing on the ground in wisconsin to defend the rights of public 'em mroipies by an attempt by the governor to take away their right to organize." this is not necessarily all grassroots, that it's very much organized by the d.n.c. and the president's chief political apparatus. on the third day of protest, which we're watching today, teachers staging a mass sick out. they're angry over a budget bill that will strip them of bargaining rights. dozens of schools had to be closed. the 14 senate democrats that high-tailed it out of the state yesterday so they could not be arrested by law enforcement and forced back by a vote have not been seen since, leaving that vote hanging in the balance. it will not take placen the senate until they get at least one democrat. chris, the agency, the url is barack obama.com, is very much on the ground. >> and they called it an assault on unions
